<Vesda> the Fire Dragon is an unique hostile NPC. He is the boss of the optional dungeon Dragon's Nest, found north of Derphy. He is found on the 4th floor.

His area is U-shaped and littered with chests and bejeweled chests. It is not a hard fight if you have a few pets and/or good fire resist.

As expected, being a fire dragon, Vesda has superb resistance to fire along with little resistance in all elements except for raw magic.

Vesda can attack from close and far with fire breath, but will try to close into melee range as soon as possible. He uses his breath attacks in tandem with normal attacks, which do fire damage. While he is fairly strong, he's also not particularly noteworthy otherwise, and with appropriate fire resistance can be taken down without much difficulty.

Killing him rewards you with the <Gloves of Vesda>, a rather useful artifact equippable in the Arms slot.

Eating his corpse grants a big fire resistance bonus. His gloves also grant fire resistance, so consider defeating Vesda if you plan to go to the Tower of Fire.

Elona+ ChangesEdit

As of Elona+, Vesda now spawns at level 40 (15 levels stronger than before) and with trained Sense Quality, Detection, Eye of Mind, Anatomy, Control Magic and Firearm skills. Thanks to the level increase, any skill she had before are now at a higher level as well. His sex was changed to female.

Also, two new NPCs bearing similar names can be found as bosses in the South Tyris Main Quest and Ancient fire dragon level 160 quest. Whether they are stronger versions of Vesda, associated individuals, or not, isn't explained.

While Vesda herself does not have an evolution, the Fire dragon child uses Vesda's sprite for one of their evolutions (along with the sprites of Metal Vesda and Vansesda).

She can be recruited with the Astral Light Pen if the conditions are met.
